SOLUTION: With the help of NextLot’s robust online auction software, Alex Lyon has consistently grown its online bidding presence over the past seven years.

  • By implementing a turn-key approach that handles all of Alex Lyon online auction needs, NextLot has given the company more time to focus on continuing to grow business internationally in Mexico. These services include: providing a multilingual webcast, photographing auction inventory, building the sale catalog, and running the online portion of the sale, as well as creating marketing materials and handling all online bidder support.

  • With NextLot’s easy to use online bidding system, Alex Lyon has been able to maintain existing bidder relationships while expanding the number of registered online bidders.
